We did this HIIT class on Tuesday. It’s Friday. My a$$ and calves are still sore AF.
But what a HIIT class it was. Wall-to-wall badassess looking to work hard, sweat a lot, swear a little, and walk (errr…hobble?) out of the fitness studio feeling mighty fine about themselves.
This week we brought back our nice little in-between-sets-upper-body-burnout, so make sure you have a set of water bottles ready before you jump in and get after it. Other than that, you don’t need any fitness equipment—just yourself, your mat, and a go-time attitude…
Prepare for lots of jumping, lots of lunges, lots of heavy breathing, and lots of hard work. Now go get after it already!
Sign-Up for HIIT Class
My HIIT workouts are designed so they can be done on your own, wherever you are, without needing weights or other exercise equipment. But I promise you you'll push yourself harder—and have a lot more fun—in one of my classes. Join us next Tuesday from 6:30-7:30pm at Central Rock Gym in Randolph, MA.
